    With less than one week until Christmas, I thought I would share some tips for managing all of the temptations that may come your way throughout the holidays!

    First, I have to highlight that after losing almost 100lbs, 14 years ago, I still struggle with the desire to run to food for comfort. Sadly, that battle hasn't gone away. And while it's managed well, when really intense events like this come up, I feel strong urges to turn to food for healing. Copious amounts of food.

    I’ve lived my life on the road as a full-time nomad for 3 years, so I am no stranger to staying healthy while indoors. For years, I’ve worked from home running my business online while traveling the world.  Staying fit without equipment is my norm; hotel rooms and Airbnbs have been my “gym” for as long as I can remember. Staying healthy in unfamiliar times may not come naturally to most, so I’m here to assure you that maintaining (and even elevating) your wellness journey, while in quarantine, is completely possible!

    It’s February, and many of us have lost sight of the resolutions set just 1 month ago. In fact, 80% of new year's resolutions fail, and 55% percent of people that set wellness goals fall off the wagon within the first month!

    I lost 90lbs as a result of a New Year's Resolution, and against all odds, I’ve kept this weight off for over 14 years! Prior to this, I had tried every diet under the sun (twice). But this time, I was determined to approach my wellness journey with a different tone as the extreme attempts hadn’t served me in the past.

    I was watching one of those late night shows and Khloe Kardashian was a guest. Let me get to the point quick. 

    Rebounding or mini trampolining is not just for kids and it’s not just for fun. This fun and effective way to exercise produces feel good hormones (endorphins), increases the metabolism and creates health benefits that are numerous and long lasting.

    I really appreciate the feedback and sharing of my last article on being told “Don’t put on too much muscle”. 

    My strength, muscles and men’s view of them, seem to be the running theme this week. Why are men still so surprised when women are strong? I’ve had male clients look at me like I’m insane when I do a move or lift a weight that they apparently didn’t think I should be able to perform or lift.

    The fear of success has run rampant. I still struggle with it. I still see it in my clients.
